Posted by geoconger in Church of England Newspaper, House of Bishops.
The US House of Bishops has released a pastoral letter calling for the church to turn its gaze away from its internal divisions toward the mounting economic hardships threatening the world.

Meeting from March 13-18 at a retreat center in North Carolina, the bishops elected a new bishops for Central Ecuador, discussed the pastoral implications of the secession of former Southern Virginia Bishop David Bane to the Southern Cone-led ACNA, reviewed legislation likely to come before this summer’s general convention, received presentations on prospects for full communion with the Moravian Church, and heard support from some of its members for the controversial bishop-elect of Northern Michigan.

However, the global financial meltdown was the sole topic raised in the bishops’ pastoral letter from the meeting.
